Overall Satisfaction with Handshake for Educational Providers

Handshake allows the college to get information out to students about career fairs, informational events, and mock interviews. It also allows companies to connect with students and post job opportunities. The Office of Career Planning also uses this platform to schedule meeting with students and alumnae.
  • Nice design aesthetic.
  • Good search features/filters.
  • Provides tips to job seekers.
  • Jobs tend to be for recent graduates only.
  • More content to support alums.
  • One location for career information.
  • Employer communications.
  • Allows students to track internship and co-op experiences.
  • Provides a space for informational resources specifically uploaded by the college's career center.
Handshake provides a job-seeking function, while our mentor's app from PeopleGrove is more of a networking experience. It would be nice if the two functions could be in one application as it is nice to see who is open to networking at specific companies and in certain fields that also go to/graduate from your school.

The communication between students and the Office of Career Planning is all in one place now. The only negative to this is that it is one more place for students to go for information and one more place that needs integration with our SIS.
